Now comical? Like it wasn't way back when our former fellow forumite started it?
Are those all pictures of Jim Morrison in the last few weeks of his life?
there's a lot to be said for standing your ground
i would add, in spite of all provocation, but it seems redundant
and now some StereoLabraDoors
No! Something appears to have swallowed Jim!
I think that the best way to truly appreciate The Doors would be to listen to the music while you're young and chemically altered. Since most of us here are neither, there is bound to be a bit of an issue.
... funny you should say, the Door Hunter, starring Robert door Niro is on TV here right now, as the blurb says
'... counterpointing their initial naive patriotism with the brutal reality of war'
Yup, one step further and kills himself. Sad, really sad.
Nobody forced Jim Morrison to party till the lights went out.
He should have lived longer, long enough to chase the
demons out of his brain and out of his life.
I'm sure eventually he would have written American
masterpieces much more than what we regard as
rock and roll from that era. Out here in LA there was
a radio DJ named Jim Ladd, who adored The Doors.
My appreciation for them was heightened by what
Jim Ladd did to their music and Morrison's poetry
on his radio program.
What was the name of one of his famous shows?
"Headphones"? something like that. He took
The Doors artwork and framed it inside his own
art space. Talented.
Skully, you remember Jim Ladd right?
sorry, didn't get to read the thread but still wanted to answer to the original post:
That's what The Doobie Brothers asked us to do.
The Ronstadt dig was in very poor taste.
Yes. I used to work with someone who was his on-and-off f-buddy. Ladd was a very important deejay in his time, but I think he has a problem with over-the-top mythologizing similar to Manzarek's.
But it's the stuff legends are made out of Skully!
Remember the movie Eddie and The Cruisers?
That was clearly Jim Morrison, or at least the typology
of that character. The issue is for all of us, how do we
want to be remembered?
Do I want to be the guitar hero to my friends?
Father knows best to my kids and G-kids?
Fair and even keel to my business associates?
Realistically, how much of that would I
honestly consider to be accurate enough
to be my character witness when I'm gone?
Jim Morrison never got the complete chance to
right some of the wrongs in his young life and is
stuck with how we view him decades later.
It seems myths are made from the ashes of incomplete
Nope. Trolling is when you keep posting antagonistic comments in a thread in which you've already said your piece.
Since you have repeated the same extremely pretentious criticism time and again, you are definitely trolling. Textbook example, in fact.
Do you have the maturity to move on, now that you understand the definition of trolling? I doubt it. Your massive ego probably won't let you.
I think you've made theses antagonistic comments a couple of times before in this thread.
I like the Doors, and my comments regarding them have not been antagonistic at all. Instead, I've just tried to get the trolls to leave. That's not trolling at all, just like it's not trolling if the OP posts in his own thread (yes, some supremely ignorant people called the OP a troll for posting in his own thread, believe it or not).
Now if I were going into someone's thread about some country artist, and repeatedly criticizing their awful lyrics or pathetic chord progressions, then that would be trolling. I could easily do that, and yet I don't because I am not a troll.
Understand the difference now?
I think people called the OP a troll based on his starting a thread with this premise (and other similar "perfect" threads). Starting a thread in which you present your opinion as an irrefutable fact in order to sit back and watch others argue about it is pretty troll-ish behavior to most.
And we all played right into it...
I think this will answer all our questions:
That version is a Morrison vocal with instruments added by the remaining Doors years later. Here's a version recorded during "The Soft Parade" sessions:
Now we have people posting about how other people are posting. This thread has more than run its course. Closed.
